Stopped after work Friday night with coworker. Food was dry and bland. Was about 6:30 so it shouldn't have been. After we suffered through it the next surprise came at the cost! $60 for the two of us, wasn't worth half that! They lost us as customers for sure.

We were suddenly in Jackson for an RV repair that would take a few hours. The guys at the shop told us to go here for a great southern food buffet. They weren't kidding ! If you can fry it, it was on the buffet. Sweet potatoes reached new heights of culinary delight. If you are in Jackson, Mississippi -... More

We had a buffet lunch and there is a huge selection of food. My companions grew up in MS so were delighted by the fried okra, hush puppies, turnip greens, beans, breaded pork, etc. I tried some of these "delicacies" but admit I wasn't impressed, but I'm not a southerner. The BBQ ribs that I had were tasty, mashed potatoes... More

We enjoyed the buffet on a Friday afternoon around 2:15. The buffet ends at 2:00, but there was still plenty of food. They had a salad bar, ribs, fried, chicken, fish, mashed potatoes, black eyed peas, and a great dessert bar. Wonderful southern cooking! The restaurant is obviously a favorite of locals as the parking lot was still busy even... More

Me and about 25 classmates went here after worship service. The food was awesome and the service was too. One of my favorite buffets in the city. Treat yourself to some collard greens, rutabagas, cabbage, yams, corn, dressing, fried and baked chicken, fish, pork chops, rolls, cobbler, cakes, pies and lots more.

My husband had been hearing about this restaurant and so we decided to eat there on a cold Saturday evening. The restaurant was inviting with a huge fire in the fireplace blazing. It was in the low 30's and they set us near the fire and it was delightful. We had the seafood buffet and added all the giant snow... More

Either Country Fisherman didn't live up to its hype to me or it has fallen way off. I was disappointed both times I visited this weekend. The food is just okay, the atmosphere feels stuffy. The employees were nice for the most part. I mean for it to be in Jackson I guess it's not bad but I for one... More

Seriously the best soul food I ever had... Please don't tell my mom! I went for lunch and had the catfish, fried corn, cabbage, cornbread and mashed potatoes with gravy (and I don't even eat gravy). It was all so good...
